Sister Helen Prejean, one of the world’s best-known anti-death-penalty activists, is asking Justice Department attorneys to “stand down” from the three remaining federal executions scheduled to take place this week in the last days of Trump’s time in office. “Stand down from these killings.

Lisa Montgomery is scheduled to become the first woman to be executed by the federal government in nearly 70 years tomorrow, Tuesday.
